  • Dissolve cornstarch in water; add to the simmering mixture. Cook until sauce thickens, about 10 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Only use vinegar if you like the sauce to be less sweet.

To use, drop cooked popcorn chicken into the sauce and let cook for an additional 2 minutes so the chicken absorbs some of the sauce.
